Richard Brody’s Best Films of the Decade: Obscure, Bold, Popular

Richard Brody's Best Films of the Decade: Obscure, Bold, Popular

New Yorker film editor Richard Brody has published his favorite films of the last decade, and it’s perhaps one of the most unique lists you’re going to find. His choices are mostly obscure. mostly arthouse, and also refreshingly unpopular (he includes critically-panned auteur pics like Wes Anderson’s The Darjeeling Limited and Woody Allen’s Cassandra’s Dream). Brody also mixes in some choices you’ll see repeated: the Dardenne Brothers’ L’Enfant, Ousmane Sembene’s Moolade, Andrew Bujaski’s Funny Ha Ha, Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up. I’m also pleased to see a couple of films I programmed at SXSW: Joe Swanberg’s Hannah Takes the Stairs and Ronnie Bronstein’s Frownland (the latter will possibly see more acclaim as more of these lists come to light). Plus, there’s even a film on Brody’s list that we’ve released through CRM’s FilmBuff: Matthew Porterfield’s underrated but terrific drama Hamilton (you can also see it immediately, on Amazon VOD).
